Thanks for sharing those Alison. I keep a close eye out for articles (see my list of over 100 resourses at but I hadn't seen any of these. They are particularly useful as they come from a range of fields and I teach students from quite a range of disciplines.

I'm looking forward to looking at them. Thanks again.

Thanks Graeme- I have perused your list before.  I am working on my dissertation that is focused on ABCD, social capital, and people with disabilities so have many related search alerts set up.
